Spotlight on American Heart Month

Aventura Hospital and Medical Center wants those in the greater North Miami Beach area to enjoy a lifetime of heart wellness. That is why we are raising awareness of American Heart Month, which takes place during the month of February. This annual event can prove instrumental in saving the lives of thousands of people who may be at risk for heart-related diseases.

Why is American Heart Month Important?
No health problem takes more lives in the United States than heart disease. Each year hundreds of thousands of Americans suffer from the effects of poor cardiovascular health. This health issue can present as a heart attack, stroke, heart failure, or another condition. American Heart Month aims to inform the American public of the widespread problems that heart disease can cause men and women of any age and ethnic background. 

What Benefits does American Heart Month Provide?
American Heart Month is a time when people can learn more about the steps they need to take to improve their cardiovascular wellbeing. Key to maintaining heart health is engaging in healthy lifestyle behaviors. Practicing wholesome eating habits is necessary for heart health. Working out on a regular basis is important as well. Finding ways to minimize stress can also lower the incidence of heart disease. While no one habit may be able to prevent heart-related medical issues, together they can greatly reduce the occurrence of cardiovascular problems.

How Can You Participate in American Heart Month?
American Heart Month is an ideal time to evaluate current lifestyle habits to determine where changes can be made. For instance, if you exercise sporadically, you can use the month of February to figure out how to work out in a more consistent fashion. So that loved ones can also enjoy a long future of heart health, American Heart Month is the time to spread the word about what causes heart disease and how to prevent it.

The Future of Surgery Is Here!

When medication, physical therapy, or other treatment measures fail to address your pressing medical needs, your physician may decide that surgery is necessary. In many cases, conventional surgical procedures can remedy many physical ailments. However, technological innovations can now allow surgeons to treatment patients more effectively with less invasive measures. Aventura Hospital and Medical Center offers state-of-the-art robotic surgery options to our Hollywood, Aventura, and Hallandale Beach patients.

What is Robotic Surgery?
Robotic surgery is a surgical procedure that enlists the aid of robotic technology. Rather than have a surgeon manually perform the necessary operation, robotic surgery utilizes doctor-controlled equipment that can make smaller incisions in spaces of limited size. Computer software provides the attending surgeon with an enlarged view of the surgical site for the duration of the procedure.

How Does Robotic Surgery Benefit Patients?
Robotic surgery can provide several important benefits to the individuals who receive it. Because robotic surgery requires incisions of smaller size, patients typically experience less bleeding and pain at the surgical site. Minimal incisions can also reduce the likelihood of infection after surgery. Restricting the area in which an incision is made also decreases trauma to nearby healthy tissues. These advantages of robotic surgery often allow patients to recover more quickly from their procedures than had they undergone traditional surgical treatment.

Why Should You Consider Robotic Surgery?
Have you been told that you require surgery for a urologic, gynologic, or thoracic medical problem? Then you may want to speak to your doctor about your options for robotic surgery. Especially for surgeries that require incisions to small regions of the body that house delicate tissues, robotic surgery can facilitate more precise measures and a faster healing period.

Aventura Hospital and Medical Center is happy to offer robotic surgery for eligible individuals who reside in Aventura, Miami, Hallandale Beach, and Hollywood. Would you like to find out if you qualify for this procedure? Then call our hospital today at (305) 682-1704 to speak with one of our hospital registered nurses.
